Holiday Lights  Contest


The City of Derby is holding its 2nd Annual Holiday Lights Contest December 4-25. Plan early to create the best display and win a prize!

We invite residents to decorate their yard, house or both. Judges will pick their favorite displays, and the public will vote for the People’s Choice prize on Facebook.

Anyone who lives in the Derby city limits is eligible to participate. 


• Traditional - lights, luminaries, ornaments, Santa Claus

• Most Creative - original decorations (look at Pinterest for ideas), eye-catching lights or a holiday theme

• Neighborhood - If you live in an HOA or on a street or cul-de-sac where most residents decorate for the holidays, enter your neighborhood in the contest.

If you have questions, email or call Janae’ Springer at 788-1519 ext. 1232.
